Southern man better cool your head
Don't forget what your good book says
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast

Southern man

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern man when will you pay them back
I heard screaming and ooh whips cracking and
How long how long, how long

Southern man

Southern man better cool your head
Don't forget what your good book says
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast

Lilly pelle your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man comin round
Swear to God, I'm gonna cut him down
I heard screaming and ooh whips cracking and
How long how long, how long

Southern man

Southern man better cool your head
Don't forget what your good book says
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast

Songwriters
Neil Young
